Hi there!

Well, this is my first post here on 'Blogger.com" - not sure I like the word 'blog', it has connotations...... but anyway.
I'm 18, live in the Western Surburbs of Melbourne and am currently studying the Bachelor of Communication (Media) at RMIT, city campus. I have a ridiculous obsession with notebooks, I buy them all the time even though I have six or seven empty ones lying around, and a rather unhealthy addiction to DVD's... I can't walk past a decent DVD if it's less than $15, and I have television boxed sets climbing up the walls. My entire desk is covered in Buffy DVD's at the moment, with a nice mix of "Angel", 'The West Wing', 'Roswell' with some 'Nip/Tuck', 'Six Feet Under' and 'Dark Angel' boxed sets soon to join them, just as soon as I can afford them...
I work at a cinema, I subscribe to Filmink and I'm taking cinema studies as my major, so I'm constantly watching movies for free: my recommendation this week is "Sideways", it's hilarious.
I'm also looking forward to "Million Dollar Baby" and "The Aviator", plus I have to admit the trailers for "Bride & Prejudice" cracked me up - definitely worth a look.
"Closer" on the other hand.... although the acting performances were amazing, the ties to its original status in a theatrical form were all a little too evident, and I must admit I found it actually a little boring at times. It had its moments though.
Meanwhile, when it comes to music, I play the saxophone and the guitar, I'm TRYING to form a band, but we're currently lacking in a decent drummer... and due to my recent 18 year-old status, I have been found recently at a lot of live performances including Killing Heidi, Veruca Salt, Grinspoon and The Donnas...
Anyway, this was just a big of an introductory blog, so I'm off to do something less... blogful... and I will post you all (you = nobody) later!
